Dear Shreya Narayan

You may be wondering as to why I am addressing you this week, when you have not been in the news of late, nor have there been a release of yours.

That is precisely what got me to write to you; because you have not been seen or read about. To be honest, what got me to address this missive to you is Sonali Bendre's charming performance in ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAI DOBAARA.

She was there for a little over 4 minutes, in a couple of scenes, and stood out with her subdued performance. Yours was a similar show in SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER, around two years ago.

Where have you been since then? You were not in the sequel (not even in Saheb's dream!)

Sonali's performance got me thinking of you; it had a similar impact then. Mahua was a character etched on Saheb's soul. Yours was an intrinsic part of the plot and you essayed it with helpless faithfulness.

Is the going tough? Are there not enough film-makers that want to cast you in their projects? Are you still in the hunt or have you moved on to another field?

If you have [moved on], I suggest you get back. The road that leads to stardom is not always paved with gold. There are going to be a lot many hiccups along the way, but try you must. Talent like yours will find its audience. There will be someone who will give you that dream role which will do justice to your ability.

I believe it is difficult for a girl in the industry. That's what they (those in the industry) say. There has always been talk of the casting couch and how you have to be horizontal for your career to go vertical! Although this talk may have some truth in it, I do believe that talent does leave its mark. Your time will come.
For that you have to try harder and persevere. Don't lose the confidence in your ability. You have to remember that gold is tested in fire!

The wait is always tough, but there's a right way to wait and a wrong way to wait. Too often, when things don't happen according to our plan, we get discouraged, anxious and distressed. Even depressed.That's because we're not waiting the right way.

So what is the right way to wait? Have you seen how the farmer waits? He waits patiently and eagerly. He waits for the rains so that he can reap his harvest.

Don't be discouraged; I encourage you to be hopeful, positive and full of expectancy! When you do that, you allow God to move into your situation. He will fight the battle for you.

Like the patient farmer, you will see that abundant harvest!

God Bless You
Martin D'Souza
